Robin Tewes - Inside out

23 January - 22 February 2020

Inside Out, reflects not only the artist’s expression of her inner thoughts and feelings but also her fascination with the interconnection of interior and exterior spaces. Her rooms feature windows, and mirrors and pictures on walls with views to the outside world. Her paintings of the outdoors create a complex feeling of comfortable containment, that rooms can inspire. The paintings in her movie theatre series feature rows and rows of empty seats facing images of indoor or outdoor life on the big screen. The theater’s lack of an audience creates in the viewer a sense of being the only audience member inspiring an intimacy that may suggest to the viewer that he or she may actually be a participant in the narrative. The People Disrobing Underwater and the Men in Trouble series depict mostly men outside, in water, struggling with themselves and each other. They are in vulnerable and compromising positions that speaks about the fragility of being human and the struggles faced in these challenging and changing times, when to be fully human means to accept one’s fragility and the need to be vulnerable and honest in order to connect, accept change, and share power.
